Would there be 14 Perl conferences this year without the shot in the arm Perl 6 provided? Would there be a Perl 5.8.4?

I don't know, but I think there's a correlation.

    I'm fully convinced that if there wasn't a perl6 effort, we'd now been seeing maintainance releases for 5.10 with a 5.12 looming on the horizon.

    As for whether there would be 14 conferences without perl6, I don't know. Is there any Perl conference this year which is mainly about perl6? The last conference I attended had three perl5 and perl1 pumpkin, but no perl6 pumpkins. It had a large talk about perl5 development, but not about perl6.

    I've two more conferences to go to this year, I'll see what's happening there.

      Come to the Austrian Perl Workshop and enjoy both a Perl6 and Perl5.8 pumpking!

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
